What Is the HydraFacial?
When we talk about one treatment doing it all, we’re talking about the HydraFacial. The Hydra Facial is an innovative treatment that has taken the skincare world by storm, with celebs, beauty influencers, and estheticians alike praising it for its revolutionary results. But, what is the Hydra Facial and what makes it such an innovative treatment?
Hydra Facial is a medical-grade hydro-dermabrasion device that cleanses, exfoliates, and infuses the skin with hydrating serums in a simple 3-step process. While microdermabrasion uses microscopic crystals to scrub away dirt and dead skin cells from the skin, hydro-dermabrasion uses water, which results in a more gentle process that causes no visible irritation.
With the ability to deliver the benefits of multiple treatments in one with zero downtime and instantly flawless results, the Hydra Facial has quickly gained a cult following all over the world. In fact, every 15 seconds, a HydraFacial is performed globally!
Not only does the Hydra Facial give you zero visible redness or irritation following treatment, but it can also treat a wide variety of skin concerns, from acne to hyperpigmentation, in just 60 minutes. It can even be used to naturally combat fine lines and wrinkles and boost the skin’s natural collagen production, making it an excellent treatment for all ages.
What Makes the HydraFacial Unique?
The unique design and function of the Hydra Facial have made it one of the most sought-after treatments in the skincare world. But, what makes it so unique?
Patented Vortex-Fusion Technology
The Hydra Facial delivers the power of microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and extractions in just one treatment thanks to the patented vortex-fusion vacuum. The interchangeable tips that fit onto the vacuum change the function of the device to deliver the benefits of multiple treatments in just one session.
This innovative device also has a dual-chamber function that allows one chamber to suck away gunk and debris trapped in the pores, while a second chamber delivers hydrating serums into the freshly cleaned pores for an incredibly hydrating extraction process.
While other treatments deliver minimal benefits, the Hydra Facial combines the best results from a variety of skin care treatments for the ultimate flawless finish.
Gentle Yet Effective Extraction Process
Painless certainly isn’t the first word that comes to mind when we think of extractions, especially when we think of manual extractions. But, with the Hydra Facial’s vortex-fusion technology, extractions are 100% pain-free thanks to the vortex-fusion vacuum.
The vortex-fusion vacuum gently sucks away gunk and debris trapped deep within the pores, as manual extractions would, but because the surface of the skin is not being irritated, there is no pain or visible redness following the Hydra Facial.
Instantly Gratifying Results
We all love the glow we get after a chemical peel or facial, but sometimes it takes a few days to show up, with visible redness and irritation taking over in the meantime.
Nobody has time to wait for flawless results, which is why the Hydra Facial is so unique. Not only can you skip that post-facial redness and irritation, but the Hydra Facial provides an instantly gratifying glow that lasts a whole week!
Plays Well With Other Treatments
While other treatments, like a chemical peel, deliver radiant results, they do not play well with other treatments. When you’re on a tight schedule or have an event to get ready for, you don’t have time to drive to separate appointments or wait for a second treatment to look your best. You want those luminous results now!
With zero downtime, the Hydra Facial is the perfect treatment to add an instant glow to your skin and can give your entire face a complete transformation when combined with other treatments, like anti-aging injections or fillers.
Because much of the Hydra Facial’s process is automated thanks to the vortex-fusion vacuum, the results are incredibly consistent. While manual extractions largely rely on an esthetician’s skill and experience, the Hydra Facial’s process has been perfected to deliver consistently flawless results in every treatment.
Pain-Free and Perfect for Sensitive Skin
Those with sensitive skin have been missing out on the benefits of extractions and chemical peels because of how aggravating the process can be for their skin. But, thanks to Hydra Facial’s gentle yet effective hydro-dermabrasion method, even those with the most sensitive skin can enjoy the treatment.
The dual-chamber vacuum allows hydrating serums to be pumped into the skin, while the other chamber sucks away debris, making the process comfortable, gentle, and completely painless. With Hydra Facial’s gentle method of extraction and exfoliation, those will sensitive skin can finally experience the benefits of extraction and chemical peels without any of the pain or irritation associated with it.
The chemical peels used during the Hydra Facial are gentle enough on the skin to prevent post-treatment scaling and peeling, yet effective enough to completely exfoliate the skin, giving those with sensitive skin the best of both worlds.
Highly Customizable and Suitable for All Skin Types
The Hydra Facial is highly customizable, and a wide variety of skin concerns can be addressed with just one treatment. It is also gentle enough to use on all skin types, no matter the tone, texture, or sensitivity level.
During your treatment, your esthetician will work with you to develop a treatment plan that addresses your biggest skin concerns throughout every step of the process. Hydra Facials can combat acne and fine lines and wrinkles, brighten hyperpigmentation, and shrink enlarged pores, making it an ideal treatment for just about anyone.
How It Works
Hydra Facials use a multi-step process centered on cleansing, exfoliating, extracting, and hydrating the skin from the inside out. Each step builds off the other to leave you with truly luminous results and a lasting glow. Keep reading to find out how each step of the Hydra Facial works so you know exactly what to expect for your first treatment.
Step 1: Detoxifying Lymphatic Massage
The detoxifying lymphatic massage helps clear out trapped toxins in the skin to improve circulation and movement within the lymphatic system of the face.
If you find your skin looking and feeling dull and lifeless, this step will help improve circulation to invigorate the skin. The additional oxygen and blood flow will give your skin a fresh, renewed glow and even out an uneven skin tone.
Step 2: Cleanse and Exfoliate
Your skin is cleansed using Hydra Facial’s signature hydro-dermabrasion method. A gentle abrasion tip is used to kick start the exfoliation process, scrubbing away dead skin cells while also delivering a customized serum to your freshly cleansed skin.
Each serum is customized to treat your biggest skin concerns, with revitalizing active ingredients such as lactic acid, glucosamine, botanical extracts, and antioxidants.
Step 3: Gentle Chemical Peel
Once the surface of your skin is cleansed and exfoliated, it is ready for deeper exfoliation. A gentle chemical peel of glycolic and salicylic acid is applied to begin breaking up congestion deep within the pores. The strength of the peel is customized and tailored to your specific skin type and concerns.
A stronger peel will target acne, oily skin, enlarged pores, and hyperpigmentation. A weaker peel is better for dryer skin types, mature skin with fine lines and wrinkles, and those with sensitive skin. No matter what strength is used, the chemical peel will brighten your skin while also prepping your skin for extractions.
Step 4: Extraction
During this stage, your pores receive a deep cleaning, with gentle extractions sucking up acne-causing bacteria and debris right at the source. This is also the stage that gives you nearly invisible pores! A solution of honey and salicylic acid breaks up blackheads and prevents future breakouts thanks to the antimicrobial effects of these two active ingredients.
Hydra Facials are designed with your comfort in mind and extractions are incredibly gentle. During the extraction process, the dual-chambered vacuum simultaneously sucks away gunk trapped in the pores while a hydrating serum with nourishing hyaluronic acid is infused deep into the freshly cleaned pores for ultimate moisture.
Step 5: Serums Seal in Benefits
With your pores thoroughly cleaned and dead skin cells completely removed, the fresh layer of skin that has been revealed is ready for treatment. A mixture of nourishing antioxidants, hyaluronic acid, and collagen-producing peptides are deeply massaged into your skin to reveal a smoother, more radiant complexion.
These active ingredients work together to seal in all the benefits of the treatment and protect your skin from free radicals in the environment, all while giving your skin lasting hydration. The result is a fresh, renewed complexion that is soft and glowing.
Step 6: Rejuvenating LED Light Therapy
To top off your treatment, your technician can use LED light therapy to further treat your skin concerns. For acne-prone skin, blue LED light is used to fight inflammation and kill acne-causing bacteria to prevent future breakouts.
For those that want the most anti-aging benefit, a red LED light is used to further stimulate collagen production, decreasing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
What Can a HydraFacial Do for Your Skin?
Hydra Facials can treat a wide variety of skin concerns and are perfect for all ages and skin types. Keep reading to find out how Hydra Facials can help you overcome your biggest skin concerns.
Reduce Acne and Break-Outs
Hydra Facials are great for treating acne and break-outs because they thoroughly clean the pores of acne-causing bacteria and debris. The salicylic and glycolic acid peels, combined with deeply cleansing extractions, eliminate breakouts and kill acne-causing bacteria before they have a chance to become pimples.
While Hydra Facials are not the only acne treatment on the market, they are the most gentle. Most acne treatments leave the skin feeling dry, resulting in a dull complexion, but the Hydra Facial can both eliminate acne and provide intense, long-lasting moisture in just one session.
Treat Hyperpigmentation and Melasma
Hydra Facials can gently reduce the appearance of dark spots and hyperpigmentation on the face, using brightening agents like vitamin C. Not only that, but Hydra Facial’s gentle methods help lighten dark spots on the skin without causing the typical peeling, scaling, and flaking that follow heavy-duty chemical peels. The result is an immediately brighter complexion without the typical downtime of stronger treatments.
Provide Intense Hydration

Frigid winters in dry, cold climates can leave your skin feeling dry no matter what you do. Hydra Facials can deeply hydrate your skin, giving you a back-from-the-beach glow even in the driest of winters.

Your skin will look and feel event-ready immediately after your appointment is done with absolutely no downtime. Your Hydra Facial glow will last for about one to two weeks, depending on your skin cell turnover rate. The results can be prolonged by using Hydra Facial products to gently exfoliate, cleanse, and hydrate the skin at home.
